Mary gave us personalized service and kept in constant communications. She goes the extra mile, arranging for and paying for a consultation with a home stager, using a photographer that puts our home in the best light, and producing excellent materials. Mary walked us through the process from start to finish so there were no surprises and she made signing the high volume of documents easy using DocuSign. We absolutely recommend Mary, She's thorough, professional, always on the job, and genuinely caring. Rob and Carolyn

My wife and I initially interviewed multiple realtors before listing our home with Mary Squier. During our initial meeting she provided us with a detailed explanation of what to expect from the point of initial listing through closing the sale. Mary had a proven track record for selling homes in our market and we believed that her solid marketing approach would successfully reach potential buyers. She emanates a sense of trust-worthiness and professionalism that makes you feel comfortable during what can be a stressful process. Additionally, Mary is detail oriented, responsive and easy to work with. Mary earned high marks and would not hesitate recommending her to anyone desiring to sell their home. Glenn and Chris

When my wife and I interviewed Mary, we knew right away that she was the best agent for us. She impressed us with her depth of knowledge and experience in the local real estate market. Mary took the time to advise us in detail on what the best strategy would be to ensure a positive outcome for our listing. She was there to guide us through the entire process and she made sure that everything went smoothly right up to closing day. We would definitely recommend Mary to anyone thinking of listing their home. Steve and Martina

We initially planned to interview 3 realtors to sell our house. Mary was the first we talked to. We were impressed by her knowledge and experience in selling houses, so we asked her immediately to be our realtor without interview the other two realtors. Mary is detail oriented and she gave us a great deal of useful advice, we really enjoyed working with her. Ming and Mei

I can’t say enough great things about Mary, this was my first time I’ve sold a home and I actually considered selling it on my own, but I am so glad that I didn’t. After researching the possibility of selling the house on my own, I decided that being new to the process, it was probably best not to and I contacted Mary. There were so many steps along the way, and I must say that Mary was amazing at explaining everything and her communication during the process was top notch. Mary was in constant contact with us regarding anything that needed to be completed and was extremely responsive to all of our questions, she always made us feel like we were her top priority. Todd

I had a great experience working with Mary. She was not only very responsive, but also proactive, which made the sale of my home effortless. Mary is an expert who understands the process of buying and selling a home. She knew the area very well and provides valuable advice to sell a home as quick as possible. Her long-term experience and community connections have helped with the process and attracted many leads. Thank you for your professionalism Mary. Lars

Mary has helped our family with several transactions. She really knows the Gilroy and Morgan Hill area and I wouldn’t use anyone else. If you are looking for a realtor to make your sale or purchase of a home a smooth process, then hire Mary. Geoff and Chantelle (Review from 2018).

Client Testimonial 9

Mary helped us purchase our home in Gilroy in April 2015. We so impressed by her knowledge of the local market. She really listened to our needs and helped us find the perfect house without wasting much time. She was always responsive and kept us informed on everything so we weren't sitting around wondering what was next. Best agent in Gilroy! Geoff & Chantelle

Client Testimonial 10

We can't say enough about the excellent service Mary provided us in our recent move from Massachusetts to California. Since we were unfamiliar with the CA market, Mary provided lots of information on properties long before our actual move. Once in the area she quickly understood our preferences and found the perfect home for us. She was always extremely responsive and professional. She has a deep understanding of the real estate business and we would highly recommend her to anyone coming to this area. Ron and Lynn

Client Testimonial 11

Mary sold us our house in 2010 during a difficult economic period. Her knowledge of how to negotiate through a short-sale was outstanding. Seven years later, in 2017, we were happy to ask her to help us sell the same house. From the time we put it on the market to closing was only 60 days with multiple offers. She was also able to negotiate a 2-week free rent-back for us. During this time, we had to be out of town a couple of times, but she kept us updated on a regular basis on the progress of the sale and the signing of the proper paperwork. We have bought and sold many houses across the country, but Mary has truly been the best realtor we've ever had! Lucy and Jim Mondo

Client Testimonial 12

Mary is a super great agent, very smart devoted, and I recommend her to anyone. She is very qualified and knows the business. I met her through some golf girlfriends. We had a great experience and sold our house quick and for more money than we asked for. Thanks Mary. Cindy

Client Testimonial 13

Mary helped us buy our new home. She patiently showed us numerous homes and never tried to rush us into a home before we were ready. Her concern is always the happiness of her client and helping them to find the best home. When we were discouraged with the process, she encouraged us and provided knowledgeable direction and advice. Mary is friendly, professional, and role models integrity. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property. Eric and Helen

Client Testimonial 14

Mary was very impressive in helping me get my 3 bedroom condo in San Jose. She was extremely helpful and friendly. She made sure that everything would turn out smooth. She would respond immediately to my inquiries and help me out. She also had excellent negotiation skills with the seller. She made sure it was an easy and fast process. Even after the sale, she would still go beyond what is expected of her. I would definitely recommend her!!! Sarah

Client Testimonial 15

Mary helped us with our first home in 6/2016. Her experience and expertise are paramount in making the process less stressful. As first-time home buyers, we needed a lot of help and guidance and Mary definitely provided us with all that. She is very easy to work with, very quick to respond and easy to reach. She is extremely professional and very detail oriented. She was patient with us and always willing to help. My husband and I are very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Mary. Gleyneth and Mark

Client Testimonial 16

Mary Squier was well recommended by a coworker of mine from the Gilroy area. Without Mary's expertise of the home-buying process, quick responsiveness, & negotiation skills, we would not have been able to purchase our dream home! Mary is well known by other agents in the area. She was very dedicated (working 7 days a week!) and is a true professional! Roy and Carol

Client Testimonial 17

We have used Mary for 7 real estate transactions over the years. We would not keep using her if she was not the best. Each sale/purchase went very smoothly. Mary is quick to respond to questions and gives accurate replies. She does everything she says she will and obviously, we are lifetime customers. Peter

Client Testimonial 18

This letter shall serve as our testimony to Mary Squier’s exceptional service as our realtor. We started looking for rental property a few years ago. Mary showed us several houses. However, since the market was a little high at that time, we stopped looking. All that time Mary was patient and extremely helpful. We started looking again and found the house that would be perfect. Mary was there for us every step of the way. There was never a question that she couldn’t answer. We called her, e-mailed her and sent her several text messages. Mary was always quick to respond to any form of communication that best suited our current need. She is extremely thorough and her attention to detail is impressive. We truly appreciate everything that she’s done to help us achieve our dreams of buying rental property and attempting to secure our financial future. There’s no one on this earth we trust more to represent us, than Mary. The integrity she has shown is truly a trait to be admired. James and Laurie Ann

Client Testimonial 19

Mary is great working through the complicated process of a short-sale. I would highly recommend her as a top professional agent. She has helped us over the last 10 years on different properties and is highly knowledgeable on local real estate. Steve and Jan

Client Testimonial 20

Mary was the best choice we could have made. She was extremely thorough and walked us through every detail (there are myriads) and was always available when we had questions. She also helped us with the purchase of a new home. I we would definitely recommend her. You cannot find a better agent or person! Dean and Sharon

Client Testimonial 21

Mary was very professional and knows the area like no other realtor. She has great communication skills and went above and beyond what we had expected to close the sale of our home. I would highly recommend her! Raj & Kam

Client Testimonial 22

This is the third house I have bought and you would think that I am an old hand at it. However, I have come to realize that each new purchase is just like a first-time venture. I was still nervous about the huge investment. I still had the same doubts and hesitation and worry about all the overwhelming issues present when purchasing a home. I still had buyer’s remorse. With your terrific professionalism you calmed all of my fears and helped me in ways you do not even know. You are by far the best agent I have worked with. I am very, very appreciative of the gentle way you guided me through the process. Your top-notch professionalism showed in how you took care of even the smallest detail…you did not leave anything to chance. Many, many times you took care of things that were beyond my expectation. I was very grateful that when you did not know something, you said so and then proceeded to find out the answer as quickly as possible. I always felt I could trust you and that you had my best interest at heart. I am really quite lucky to have snagged on to you for the crazy ride we took. Thank you so much for everything. Mavis

Client Testimonial 23

We have purchased three homes with Mary leading the way. She was there for our first house in San Jose; she helped us find one in Gilroy and when we moved back to San Jose there Mary was again helping us with a home as well as selling all the old ones. We have always been pleased at the homes she shows us and she has all the paperwork ready with explanations and answers for all of our questions. We have referred Mary to many people with the knowledge that they won’t have any problems and that their home buying and selling will go smoothly. Mary is very efficient and helpful as well as being a professional with a great attitude and personality. We will always hire Mary if we Sell or Buy. What a jewel! Thanks for everything Mary, you are the greatest! Jim and Kathy

Client Testimonial 24

We recently sold our home in Gilroy, CA. Mary was our listing agent. It was the first time we worked with Mary. From our experience, Mary is, hands down, our #1 Real Estate Agent! We have bought and sold several homes. She tops the level of professionalism, knowledge, and support. Her expertise in the market was crucial for us. We were moving out of state, which was stressful enough. The way Mary Squier handled herself, the level of professionalism, care she had for us and our home, kept that stress level to a minimum. We didn't have to worry about the transaction, which made us feel more at ease while dealing with the new purchase of our home out state. We are very thankful for all of Mary's hard work, and we highly respect and recommend her. Theresa and Scott

Client Testimonial 25

Mary is the Ultimate professional. Mary sold our house in 1 week. I am sure this is as a result of her knowledge of the market and pricing it right. It was such an easy process as she handled all the details beautifully! I would absolutely use her again. Michelle and Richard

Client Testimonial 26

Mary helped us sell our house in the summer of 2010. Given the slow real estate market at the time, this could have been a daunting house to sell. However, due to Mary’s skills as a professional realtor, our house sold and escrow closed within three months of its listing. From our very first meeting with her through the last day of escrow, Mary maintained a professional manner. She kept in close contact with us and follow-up with other realtors who had shown our house to their clients. In addition, she kept us apprised of current comps, and gave us staging advice. At the time of our listing, we had not begun to look at new homes but had mentioned to Mary some of the key features that we were interested in. Mary actively stays in touch with current property on the market. When she found a home that she thought we would be interested in she brought it to our attention. It turned out that this house was exactly what we wanted, and we put a contingency offer on it which was accepted. As it turned out, the escrow of our old home and new home closed on the same day literally saving us thousands of dollars in moving, storage and rental costs. Mary’s diligence paid off for us and we would highly recommend her to anyone planning to sell or buy a house. Dale and Nikki

I was referred to Mary Squier by my mom. Mary helped my mom purchase her first home 20 years ago. When I emailed Mary, she quickly responded and helped us every step of the way. She was always available for us when we wanted to tour a home. She was able to answer all of our questions and we were kept in the loop the entire time. She was able to make the process of purchasing our first home smooth and informative. We were very fortunate to have Mary help us every step of the way! We highly recommend contacting Mary if you are interested in purchasing or selling your home!!!!! Steve and Rachael

Client Testimonial 28

It has been a pleasure working with you as our realtor. Since we started our search for a new home last April, you have been helpful to us in finding the right neighborhood and house for our needs. Your patience and diligence with the entire short sale process was extraordinary. Many of our discussions and negotiations needed to be done long distance. We appreciate your ability to use technology, such as cell phone videos and an electronic signature device to help us make decisions and make sure that all of the “t’s” were crossed and “i’s” dotted. Your efforts to make sure it all happened, including a last minute late afternoon 50 minute drive to make sure that my husband and I could meet with the notary before a deadline, is indicative of why you have been successful with these types of transactions. We would gladly recommend your services to anybody who is interested. Thank you for all of your help. Lucy and Jim

We are still out of town, but wanted to express our thanks to you for your excellent assistance in the sale of our home in Eagle Ridge. We were very happy with your attention to the details of the sale. Your patience and rapid response to our e-mails and phone calls was especially appreciated. We know you put a lot of time in with the real estate open houses, meeting with the inspectors, and appraiser, and being present at the closing, and we are grateful that all that attention to detail made the sale go smoothly. We have enjoyed knowing you while living in Eagle Ridge, and wish you all the best with your future real estate transactions. Sincerely, Carl and Penny

I am writing this letter in regards to my personal experience with Mary Squier. From the moment I signed on with Mary regarding the sale of my home, and the purchase of a new home, I encountered a very professional agent. Mary was more interested in my well being and comfort level than ‘making the sale’. The housing market is fragile and the economy is difficult but Mary understood the constant changes and was honest, but sensitive to my needs. Mary’s knowledge base has been most impressive and she never leaves questions unanswered. Mary has been instrumental in helping by asking questions that I’d forgotten to ask. She always made sure that I had a complete understanding of the situation before I made any decisions or signed any papers. Mary’s integrity is clearly visible, but don’t be fooled by her kind and gentle exterior. She can, and will be a champion when acting in the best interest of her clients. She does not quit until the objective has been met and is always available when needed. I have been most fortunate in my experience with Mary Squier and would highly recommend her services to anyone who is in need of an excellent real estate agent. Agnes

I’ve been meaning to write to you since you helped us buy our home in Eagle Ridge last year. I just want you to know what a good experience it was working with you. You sold our house in San Jose for a very good price, and helped us through the purchase of our Eagle Ridge home. You were very efficient about marketing our San Jose home. You provided us with useful survey of the market, took wonderful photos of our house, marketed it very efficiently. As a result of our new purchase, we needed to sell our home quickly, and that is exactly what you did. In regard to the purchase of the Eagle Ridge home, we couldn’t be happier. It was a difficult time to buy a home. I guess it was a seller’s market. However, you showed us a number of homes and negotiated the purchase of our home very effectively. Please feel free to use my name as a reference. Ken and Sylvia

Client Testimonial 32

We are a younger couple and everybody told us for our first purchase we should find a "starter home", meaning we shouldn't be too picky. Seeing as we were a military couple and that we had previously moved a minimum of once a year when we had the opportunity to settle we wanted to find a home we could live in for the next 30 years not 3! Mary miraculously pulled this off! She found us a good home with a beautiful yard, (which was very important to us) in a great neighborhood! It was a short sale so we were prepared to fight for months, as that was what it seemed everyone else had to do, but we closed in about 2 months of seeing the property! She definitely knows how to work with the banks and best of all listens to what is most important to you when purchasing! Lars & Trillian

Client Testimonial 33

Mary helped my husband and I sell our home as a short sale in 2014. We were in a position that we had never been in before; the possibility that we may lose our home to foreclosure. We were just recovering from numerous financial difficulties and had decided to move out of our home and let the bank foreclose. I ran in to Mary one day and she asked if we had considered a short sale. We knew Mary from the neighborhood, and also in business and had always respected her opinion, but told her we were not ready. She respected our opinion and never pushed us any further. We were approached by many Realtors that made big promises, but we declined.
Three years after moving out of the house, the bank still had not foreclosed, only threatened to foreclose. We then got a call from a Servicer of our bank that our house was still going towards foreclosure but perhaps we could do a short sale. They said they had Real Estate agents that work with them or we could choose our own agent. I knew the only one I could trust was Mary so I immediately called her. She came to our home and told us about all the steps of a short sale. She made us feel very comfortable about what we needed to do to get our home ready for sale and all the necessary paperwork we needed to prepare. At times it felt overwhelming, but Mary was very kind and helpful at every step. Michael wasn’t on board at first as he was frustrated that this was still hanging over our heads. Mary quickly won him over with her professionalism, honesty, experience in short sales and most of all her empathy of our situation.
Mary found a buyer for the house quickly, due to her exceptional networking and helped to set a price for the home that was acceptable to the buyers and most importantly to our bank! There was quite a bit of paperwork, but she made it easy and convenient to accomplish via Fax and DocuSign.
When there was issues with the bank, Mary did not back down. She showed the lender with detailed comparables in the neighborhood of why the bank should take this offer. She also had the ability to know when to escalate issues to a higher up. Mary would keep us informed with every conversation she had with the lender. We never felt like we were in the dark. Whenever we had a question or a worry, she would call back within literally minutes. Given the experience she had; she was always able to give us an answer that made us feel hopeful that it was going to go through, but she never made any false promises.
When we were close to the end of the process, I asked Mary why she didn’t push us to pursue this option earlier and she simply said “You were not ready”. Whether you are buying, selling, or doing a short sale, like we did, it is a very emotional time and you need to be ready. Ready, and have an agent like Mary. This chapter of our lives is finally closed. Thank you Mary! Patti and Michael

Mary has good relationships with other realtors and is able to get solid information regarding listed properties quickly and accurately. Her upfront work made my offer easy and efficient to make. I was able to sign counter offers, acknowledgements and approvals electronically, saving me time and travel. She was always on time for appointments and was able to fit me into her schedule. She has excellent local knowledge and has seen most of the property styles in town. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone looking to purchase a home. Jim

I met Mary Squier and told her what I was looking for in a house -- She quickly came back to me with a number of homes that were in my price range and we started the process of determining which one would fit my wife and I best. Then I got a call from Mary about a short sale that was coming on the market. Because Mary knows the area so well and has close relationships in the marketplace she was one of the first people to know about this offering. She quickly set up an appointment for me to see the house and it was exactly what we were looking for - Right house - Right yard - Right neighborhood. Then I really got to see Mary shine as she helped us through each step of a very complicated process - Her professionalism was impressive and we were able to purchase our current home -- If you are looking for a home anywhere from South San Jose to Gilroy (especially Morgan Hill/ Gilroy) I have to recommend you speak with Mary before you even start the process -- In doing so I think you will save yourself a lot of time and stress. She will provide you all the tools you need to find the place that fits you best and make what could have been a stressful process exciting and fun. When Mary is in your corner - You Cannot Lose!! John & MaJing

Two years ago we considered selling our Mother's home. With the slow housing market we decided to wait. In January Mary let us know that the timing was good to sell, if we were still interested. With so few houses on the market, especially in our price range, she predicted that we would get multiple offers on our home. She made improvement suggestions that would make the house appealing to potential buyers without over spending. She advised us on a listing price to encourage interested buyers. Mary was "right on" with her timing and suggestions. Forty offers came in after our March 2nd open house. Mary guided us through the counter and re-counter process and kept us updated on the progress by phone, email or text. She was readily available to answer our questions and made us feel like our transaction was the only one she was working on, which I knew wasn't the case. Within a week of the open house, we had a firm offer in place with the contract conditions and price well over our expectations. Mary kept a handle on every aspect of the buying and selling process and used available technology, like DocuSign, to make sure there were no delays. It was 27 days from our open house to close of escrow and our house sold for nearly 20% over listed price. Mary's expertise and diligence made that happen. Mary is patient and has a friendly, calm demeanor but she also is a very detailed and knowledgeable Realtor with strong negotiating skills. She is very professional, extremely dedicated to her clients and will have your best interest in mind when working for you. We highly recommend Mary and would definitely use her again. Bonnie and Bruce

We decided to work with Mary after receiving very positive recommendations. The sale of our home was challenging because we were multiple owners and were short selling the property. Mary handled all the paper work, worked with our lender and made it extremely convenient by handling everything. Because I live outside the US it was specially challenging when needing to sign documents, but Mary handled it and made it easy by providing me an online option. She also worked with the lender and fought hard to avoid foreclosure and also secured us a $30,000 incentive which we received the day of closing! I highly recommend Mary... she is pleasant to work with, patient and very professional. John

Mary helped us find our dream house in a gated community with an excellent environment. Since we’re so picky with details, it took over 3 years to finally find our dream house in Eagle Ridge, Gilroy, Ca 95020. During the three years, we visited the area on a weekly basis. Mary has always been helpful, patient, and honest with her opinions—it’s amazing that she stayed with us for 3 years with no complaints. She’s a very experienced agent and helped us work through every minute detail of each house we visited, taking the time to thoroughly answer any questions we had. Lily and Frank
